2/10 Poor

There was mold on the ceilings. Even after switch rooms. The smell of mold and mildew made me puke repeatedly. I tried to check out before attending my brother's army graduation and no body would answer the front desk. I called and no one answered. I checked out early because I couldn't stomach the place and now I can't get ahold of anyone for a refund. This place is horrible and needs closed down! It's a health hazard!!!157.00 for what? Making me sick? Stay away!

OK for the price
Lobby is blocked off & you only see staff thru a window & a small open slot underneath. Room was big & clean, but outside of motel was not as clean. After things got quiet about 10 P. M., everything was fine. Staff was courteous
